The men began emerging like clockwork from the depths of a mine that could easily have been their tomb. They jubilantly embraced their wives, children and rescue workers, looking remarkably composed after languishing underground for 69 days.

~NPR covers the successful rescue effort at Chile’s San Jose Mine amid a torrent of press.

KENTUCKY~ Grand Rivers’ Vulcan Materials workers could unionize. Mayfield’s Zoning Board will take (yet another) look at a permit request for a downtown mosque. A Mayfield man is arrested in McCracken County for a DUI hit and run. The Paducah Sun has it that an Oklahoma city administrator will likely be Paducah’s new city manager. Paducah city commissioners will vote next week to keep property taxes the same. If given the shot, Rand Paul would kill the IRS and the federal income tax.

TENNESSEE~ Murder, kidnapping & suicide in Clarksville (Oh my!). State sales tax revenue grew again last month. Early voting begins.
